What’s in My Bag?

Jul 21, 2021

Ever wondered what I carry around for my weddings and portraits? Or maybe what software I use for my clients or designing albums? Well, here it all is, even broken down by category!

In my Carry Bag:

Nikon D750 but I’m thinking about upgrading to the Nikon Z7 Mirrorless after my friends raved about it!
Pentax 645n: because 120 film is the most beautiful thing I can ever shoot.
Nikon 85mm f/1.8G
Nikon 50mm f/1.8G
Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 for Nikon
Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 for Nikon
SanDisk 64GB Extreme Pro Cards (I use the 32GB for Receptions and Portrait Sessions)
ONA Bag – The Brixton or The Libby 2.0 from Kelly Moore depending on the shoot!

In My Reception Bag:

Lowepro Pro Roller x100 AW : The day I purchased this was the day I no longer had to carry my old Amazon’s backpack around to weddings
Godox V1 Flashes for Nikon: These are a dream come true!
Godox XProN TTL Wireless Flash Trigger for Nikon Cameras: with this, I can sync my film camera to my flashes
Cheetah Lightstands: I love these soooo much because you can pick them up and the bottom collapses to make it easier to move
MagMod Professional Flash Kit
MagMod MagShoe
Extra MagMod MagGrips for all of my flashes
Backup Nikon D750

For Travel:

Jo Totes Sienna Bag: I purchased this when I lived abroad and used it every single weekend. I love it and it makes me feel so secure because all of my gear is padded!
Nikon F100 35mm Camera Body: Because lugging my 645n might make me a little too extra…
